Happy Halloween from the cast of Disney's Bolt!

For Liam's Bolt costume I used Simplicty pattern 2855. It was a very easy to follow pattern and worked up quickly. A costume staple. I highly recommend it. So many options.
To make the ears a little more sticky-upy and Bolt-like I just enlarged the cat ears provided in the pattern and added an extra layer of felt on the inside.
For the tail, I altered the cat tail provided in the pattern making it thicker overall and widening the end even more.
Take away the lightning bolt and the collar and the costume is a dead ringer for the wolf costume in Where the Wild Things Are so we just may use this one again next year if it still fits. Who am I kidding? I'm going to want to make a totally different costume just for fun. Suggestions welcome.
